Thou tlio Pensions Appropriations and Possibly tho Tarlft' niU - TIio Silvei Measure and MorrlU Soiniloe Pension to Receive Attention. Washington, April 28.-The senate during the present week -will dispose of the land grant forfeiture bill, the pension appropriation bill, and possibly the customs administration bill, known as the McKinley blU. The land graut for-feitiire bill remains the unfinished business on the calendar. It is likely that the appropriation committee will attempt to sandwich the pension bill in between this measure and the McKinley bill. Tho appropriation bill has no place in the order of business, but the other business of the senate must give it light of way. It was thought at first that the McKinley bill would go through the senate without opposition, in the form in which it came from the finance committee. There was no opposition to it in that committee and there will be no Democratic opposition of importance on the floor of the senate. But opposition has developed in a new quarter and i* promises to delay by a day or two thc-passage of the bill Mr. Bvarts has annotmced his intention of offering some amendments to the bill as reported from the committee, tho chief of which is a propo.sition that all final .iudgments when in favor of the importer shall be paid by the secretary of the treasury from the permanent and definite appropriations provided in the bill. The proposed amendment does not meet with the sanction of the members of the committee and its introduction is likely to lead to some debate. It is the intention of the Republican leaders of the house to force the silver question to a conclusion so far as the house is concerned during the week. The coniproniiao silver bill will be the measure brought forward and two days ^vill be given to its di.scussion, voting on its passage totake place immediately at the conclusion of the debate. The Morrill service pension bill which recently failed to gain a hearing under suspension of the rules, -N^dll ha considered probably on Tuesday and i)ushed to a conclusion before ad.iournment on that day. This Inll was sanctioned by the Republican caucus on last Wednesday, and tho Repiiblicajis have \-irtually pledged themselves to its support. An aiTangenient has been made by which one day hithe week, probably Friday, will, be set ap.irt for tlie pas.sage of public building bills. ' Mr. MsKinley has stated that the tariff debate �will not begin during the week, but he may bring forw^ard the Dingley bill to increase "the duties on worsted cloths. Mr. Henderson of Illinois would like to have the rivei- .and harbor bill called up for discussion, but it is probable that he will defer to the wislies of the Republican leaders in regard to tho progi'amme for the week.

Baldwin, agent of the Santa Fe at Lowell, Kans., ab.sconded Fridiiy with $1,000 belonging to the road. Through some means it bectime known to the officials of the road in Topeka, and they immediately telegi'aphed their agent here to have him arrested. .Tnst before the message was received Bahhrin entered the general offictvi of the Siuita Fe and asked for employment as telegraph operator. While he was in the office the message asking that the absconder be arrested began to come in over the -wire.

Newark, N.J., April 28.-Pi-ederick Wismer, cashier of the water commissioners, and son of the chairman of the board, has re.signed his commission, and it is said that his father has made good the deficit of $2,500 in his at;counts.

Shortly afterward it was announced] that young Wismer intended to resign in order to enter the publishing business. It is stated that he was allowed to remain in office after the deficiency was revealed, in order to prevent Randal, and will now be permitted to go without prosecution on account of his high esteem in which his family is held.

There being no jail y.ard, the whippuig took place on the village green'on a space roped off' to keep back the crowd of 300. The young men were connected with prominent families, and their trial was one of the most hotly contested legal battles ever known in this section. Arre.st of a Mill Manager. Attica, N.Y., April 28.-The arrest of Horace A. Eldred ;for the misappropriation of funds of .tSa--Attica .mills of this place, is the subject of - general conversation among Attica people.

At first he lived at Bata-via and from there he went to Buffalo and finally rerfted an expensive house in this village. His salary as manager was $100 a month, and as his tastes were extremely expensive it did not take long for him to get in trouble. An �m1>e7.7.1er Surrenders. Trenton," N. J., April 28.-Casper Soer, the head clerk of the Newark post-office, was committed to the Trenton jail by United States Commissioner Rowe, in default of .$5,000 bail, for embezzling $5,000 from the money order depai'tmeut of the Newark postofflce.

The T.eagiie Dodges  on Dates-.Sunday's (jaines-Clulis* .Standing. CiucAOO, April 28.-Secretary Bruu-nell of the Players' league said that the Chicago club of the Plaj'ers' league would make no move to meet that of the National league team in transferring the Pittsburg club from Pittsburg and opening its season here next Tuesday. It is amusing though, he says, to see the Pittsburg team of the National league, whose officials were the loudest for a conflict of dates, go on record as the first to dodge, andxtin away from its own town to do it. Pittsburg's retreat.in his opinion, only points to a general one all along the old league line. "Our schedule was made to stay," he says, "and will stay, no matter what the old le.ague does." _ In to Stay. Buffalo, April 38.-The report that Waslnngton capitalists are negotiating with the Buffalo Brotherhood backers to obtain possession of the Players' League team is denied here. Moses Shire said: "We have not received or made any iroposition to Washington base ball men wnmng to the transfer of our club. Such a move has not been thought of. We are in the Players' League to stay, and stay we will." Sunday Games. ,v.mehican association. At St. Louis-St. Louis, 14; Columbus, 1.

Hail  Visits Raltimore and  Riddles AU but tlie Correspondents T.,ively Imagination. Baltimore, April 38.-This city was visiterl about 4 o'clock by h.ail of a size and destructive power never before seen in this city. The haU was i.ot like the snow-coated haU of commerca, but was plain, hard ice, frozen through and through, clear as a crystal and solid as a rock. It went through thick panes of glass as if they were tissue paper, and the ambuut of Bamage done by it can only be figured up when all the broken panes are counted. The loss will run into the thousands. The hail stones were like rocks, some of them ri and sharp on the edges as a steel blade. Hens' eggs were nothing to them in size. Many of them were as large as a man's fist and as they came down they sounded like so many cannon balls fallmg on the helpless earth. The storm came from the west, local in its character,and swept to the east with . a rattle like heavy musketry, frightening people out of their mts, making some of the superstitious think that the day of judgment had come, and . hitting those who were on the streets many hard knocks and driving them into places of shelter. All over the city the damage was heavy. No glass that met the fuU force of the hail was strong enough to stand the force of the cobble stone like blocks that came out of the sky. Charles steeet windows looked as if they had been on the .battlefield, and in the houses on Mt. Vernon Place the damage was very considerable and the alarm was imusual. In the annex the rain, vdnd and hail did even more severe damage than in the city. Walls were swept down, houses imroofed and the amount of glass smashed and other damage done was almost incalculable. NothInK Irregrular at Atlanta. Atlanta, "Ga., April 28.-Congressmen Oates, Thompson and McCormick, who have been here inquiring into alleged ii-regular practices in United States courts, find that prisoners are frequently surrendered by bondsmen, putting the expense of transportation upon the gov-eniment. But this abuse can not be remedied except by a change in the law. Beyond this there is no fault found with the courts of this district. The committee go from here to Mobile. A I,ong Tramp. TOPEiCA, Kan., April 28.-J. S. Hax-riman, who claims lo be the champion psdestrian cf the world, arrived in Topeka, on his way to San Francisco. He is engaged in walking from his home in Wabash, Ind., to San Francisco, on a wager with Mr. McDonald, of New York, John L. Sullivan's backer,to walk the distance, estimated at 8,000 mUes, in sixty-five days. He left Wabash April 10 and is up with his schedule time. Sportsmen's Touniameiit. Grand Island, Neb., April 28.- Every aiTangement for the Nebraska "state sportsmen's touniament which will be held in this city M.ay 30-38, under the management of the Grand Island gun club, has been comiileted. Besides the 000 the club gives m siiecial prizes, ^ uimiber of prizes will be given by the citizens. SliocKlng.
